Tarascon-sur-Ariège
The Essential
Tarascon is a major centre in the Pyrenees for research speleologists (mainly engaged in the study of the Neolithic period); it is also very popular with amateur enthusiasts interested in unravelling local mysteries. The rocky slopes are dotted with fifty or so natural grottoes, 12 of which are decorated, such as the famous Niaux cave. The limestone cliffs cut out by the river lend the city an attractive setting, further enhanced by thick forests, ideal for hiking.
